The Taylor GS Mini packs the voice of a full-size guitar into a fun, compact size at an affordable price.

Whether you're looking for a travel-friendly acoustic guitar that won't sacrifice in volume or tone, or maybe you just feel more comfortable with a smaller instrument to keep in the house, the Taylor GS Mini is the answer.

The epitome of "good things come in small packages", the Taylor GS Mini Acoustic Guitar packs a rich, full-bodied acoustic voice into a scaled-down version of Taylor's bold-sounding Grand Symphony shape. Featuring layered sapele back and sides, a Sitka spruce soundboard and X-bracing with Taylor's tone-enhancing relief rout, the GS Mini is durable, affordable and offers a beautiful sound with more volume than you'd expect from a guitar of its size. Making the GS Mini incredibly fun and extremely comfortable to play, the smaller body is paired with a short 23.5"-scale sapele neck that sports a 20-fret ebony fingerboard. Other features include die-cast chrome tuning machines, an ebony bridge and a Nubone nut & saddle. Offering the portability of the gig bag with the protective properties of a hard case, a Taylor hard bag with adjustable backpack straps is included with your purchase of the GS Mini.

If you decide after you purchase the GS Mini that you want the plug-in-and-play flexibility of an onboard pickup, there is no need to fret (pun intended)! Taylor has designed an easy-to-install aftermarket, passive magnetic soundhole pickup that was specifically developed for the GS Mini: the ES-Go. No guitar technicians needed for installation. As long as you have a screwdriver, you can install this the ES-Go in minutes thanks to the pre-fitted brackets under the hood of the GS Mini. Control the volume of your plugged-in sound with ease by pairing the ES-Go pickup with the Taylor V-Cable that features a built-in volume control right on the cord. Taylor ES-Go and Taylor V-Cable sold separately.

        Comments about Taylor GS Mini Acoustic Guitar:

        The featured layered sapele back and sides, and sitka spruce top gives this guitar a well balanced sound. This guitars body shape makes it very comfortable to play. For a small bodied instrument, this guitar packs a lot of tone. Straight out of the hard gigbag that it comes with, you will notice it is very fun to play.

          Comments about Taylor GS Mini Acoustic Guitar:

          When I first heard this guitar being played, I fell instantly in love with it! The Sapele wood makes this guitar sound so rich and full for such a small guitar. This guitar is great for any small-sized player who is looking for a serious guitar. It plays very well for intimate, small venue performances. Plus, the case it comes with is perfect for traveling and gigging around. The perfect guitar for the fun-sized player!

                The Taylor GS Mini is a fantastic acoustic guitar. Featuring Taylor's grand symphony body, this guitar is small and comfortable, yet retains all of the sound and tone Taylor is known for. It also features a solid top, allowing for true acoustic resonance. Whether you are looking for an easily portable guitar, or just a great sounding acoustic the GS Mini is the total package.

                    The GS Mini is a fun little guitar. It sounds great and looks great. Nothing else really needs to be said about it. Taylor has established itself as a top-shelf company in the industry and products like this reasonably priced GS Mini are exactly why.

                    The size of this guitar makes it a perfect choice to take anywhere. Whether you're on the road or sitting on the couch you can't go wrong with this guitar. Sit around and write songs or jam with friends. A portable guitar that doesn't compromise tone or sound.
